Jivebeat turned 1 this week, and whilst I'm not going to say too much on here about it (there will be a blog post later in the week) I really do want to say that you made our birthday something very special for us. It has been an absolute privilege to be your dance teacher for this last year, and here's hoping for many many more years to come. Thank you!!

This coming week...

For the next two weeks we will be going back to basics. We have had a large number of people signing up over the summer and so we thought we would dedicate the next two weeks specifically to covering the fundamentals. If you have never danced LeRoc or Tango before then this is an ideal opportunity to find out what it is all about and see why we all love dancing so much. And remember that even if you are a more experienced dancer you will still find something to learn or practise, so come along and join in the fun. 

It's a big Jivebeat welcome to everyone!
